Dedicated to Water Analysis
The Cecil AquaQuest water quality test spectrophotometer has been specially designed to cover the complete requirements of water analysis spectrophotometers. Both visible range and UV/visible range instruments are offered, each with or without an integral printer for convenient presentation of results, without the extra space required by an external printer.
Fast and Easy to Operate
Choosing a water quality test method complete with the appropriate sample pathlength could not be simpler. It takes only about 15 seconds to select the method and get the instrument set up and ready for measurement. Quick change sample holders each accommodating more than one sample pathlength add to convenience and speed up operation.
Cecil spectrophotometers are well known for their durability. The lamp is the most expensive consumable part on a spectrophotometer. A Cecil lamp will last for over 3 years, in contrast to a typical spectrophotometer whose lamps need changing multiple times per year. Over the life of the Cecil instrument this can amount to significant cost savings. Cecil takes pride in the lowest instrument maintenance costs in the industry.
Use with Any Brand Test Kit
AquaQuest can be used with any manufacturer’s water quality test kits. Save money by avoiding a spectrophotometer that locks you into expensive consumable contracts.
Exceptional Optical Performance and Stability
Superb performance is the result of the excellent specifications of the AquaQuest. Exceptionally high stability, low stray light, low noise and high wavelength-setting precision ensure that reliable and accurate measurements may be made to 3 Absorbance units.
Whatever special needs your laboratory may have, the AquaQuest spectrophotometer offers the flexibility, power and performance required. Wavelength scanning, cell programming, batch sampling, wavelength programming, time course plotting and reaction kinetics are all available.
All instruments are completely programmed for approximately 150 water quality test methods based on the proven range of Merck 'Spectroquant' test kits. Users may also develop their own methods and calibrations to be stored in security-protected memory for instant recall and use at any time.
Cecil will set up the analyzer so that at start-up it will go immediately to the wavelength of interest. There is no charge for this customization, a real convenience to those who use only one or two methods.
Cecil offers a complete range of sampling accessories. All instruments are fitted as standard with a special dual sample holder designed to accommodate both 10mm rectangular cuvettes and 16mm reaction tubes as supplied with many Merck test kits; no need to change holder when switching between the two. Sample holders take only seconds to change without the use of any tool. More advance sampling options include the sipette system, automatic cell changers, and batch sampling. For a more extensive description of sampling options request a brochure.
An Analytical Balance Primer
If you are planning to purchase an analytical balance or are starting to work with one there are a number of points to keep in mind. At the top of the list: analytical balances are extremely delicate instruments designed for precision and accuracy when displaying the mass of samples to within 0.1 mg. High end
Vaccine Refrigerators for the 2014 Flu Season
The fast-approaching 2014 flu season serves as a reminder for healthcare facility operators to review their vaccine storage practices especially relating to the ability of their vaccine refrigerators to maintain the correct storage temperature. As reported in previous Tovatech posts costs related to loss of vaccine potency due to human error and mechanical failure can
How to Choose Lab Glassware Cleaning Solutions
Cleaning lab glassware is a crucial procedure in research labs, pharmaceutical manufacturing, hospitals and similar facilities operating under GMP and GLP procedures. The objective in any laboratory glass cleaning procedure is to achieve surfaces free of chemical, grease and other residues. Certain applications may also require sterilizing cleaned lab glass. Not all residues on laboratory
Ultra-Low Temperature 4.6 cu.ft. Chest Freezer for Confined Spaces
The Norlake 4.6 cubic foot top loading ultra-low chest freezer now available from Tovatech offers government, private and educational research facilities a high performance ultra low temperature cold storage solution in a small package. It requires a footprint less than 33 inches square and is just 46 inches high. The scientific freezer is factory set
Fast Ultrasonic Degassing Viscous Liquid
Performing rheological measurements on viscous liquids such as shampoo necessitates removing trapped air from product samples before viscosity analysis can proceed. This can be a time-consuming operation requiring several hours. Ultrasonic degassing viscous liquid reduces the time to minutes. In brief, cavitation action in the ultrasonic cleaner bath passes through the glass walls of immersed
